L'Oreal Glam Shine Cream Lipstick [Review+ Swatches]



I'm not a red lipstick person actually but this shade of the L'Oreal Glamshine Cream lipsticks called Sparkling Red is not just another red lipstick at all! Today I'm going to review it for you and share with you the magic of this product.

What L'Oreal says about it:

Glam Shine Cream offers a unique result, when applied to the lips, the solid formula transforms into a liquid texture, creating an ultra glossy and shiny color result. Enriched with moisture agents, the glam shine formula leaves you lips soft and supple.



Packaging:
A usual twist-up lipstick in a sleek silver metal stick with a pink plastic section between the bottom and the lid. 



Review and Swatches:
As the name implies this is a sparkly red color, with gold shimmer particles in it. The texture is super smooth and moisturizing. Infact it works like a balm if you wear it over dry and chapped lips. It has a fruity kind of a sweet smell which is quite nice. 
A single swipe of it gives a nice wash of color, to me it's like a red-tinted balm in a single slick, doesn't feel heavy or sticky at all. The color can be built with layering it to achieve a shade as intense as you like. Touch ups are needed but even when the lipstick fades it leaves behind a nice tint.
you can use it on its own or pair it up with a matte red lipstick[I do that!] to add the glossy/shimmery effect.
I highly recommend it for evening wear!:)



Here are the swatches:

The single swipe is quite sheer, the texture is glossy and creamy as you can see:

Price/Availability:
I got this for PKR 1275 from Ebco, The Forum. You can check the entire list of stores where these are available in Pakistan Here



The Good Points:
  • Super smooth and moisturizing like a balm.
  • The color can be built.
  • Creamy texture which makes it look glossy.
  • Classic and sturdy packaging.
  • Nice range of colors.
The Not So Good Points: 
  • May not last very long.
